    Not for me this week. I too have talked myself out of it due to the weather, I justified it by the fact that I'd be out longer if I pulled something through not warming up properly or slipped and...

    So .... here are the results. To be honest if it was a better colour match to the steel it may just pass as a DIY job [emoji23]

    Woooooahhhhha now that may just be a little to Heath Robinson, even for me. Saying that for the cost of some JB Weld and time with a donor case I may just give it a try and see what the results are...

    Thanks. As I said it's a bit of an airbrained idea but I guess it's each to their own and what pleases one will not please another. Not that I need to justify but I have a WMT milsub homage that...

    Brilliant thanks for all the insight / suggestions gents. I was considering using the Rolex type bars, however I have no idea about stainless steel welding so that would need to be a job for an...
  7. Converting spring bars to fixed bars. Laser Weld, Silver Solder or something else?

    Afternoon,

    I'm looking for a bit of advice for an airbrained project I have somehow talked myself into contemplating :hopelessness:

    Does anyone know how easy it would be to convert a case with...

    I'll try and remember to get you a photo when it's dark .. to be honest I don't really take much notice of the lume (maybe that gives you all the answer you need) but I would say that the lume on the...

    Thanks. Yes there are a few things that I would personally change to make it more akin to the original (fixed bars, better match of the hands to the dial) but I keep arguing with myself about whether...
  11. Does anyone make 5513 homage - plexi, 4mm etc?

    I would agree with a majority of the sentiment in here regarding WMT. It was the limited edition Royal Marine ĎRolex 5517 Milsubí that hit a note with me. I had missed the original sale but luckily...

    I think the strap is a nice touch and a ode to the original so I can see where Timex were going. However that said, Iíve switched mine out to a Casio A158W bracelet and IMO itís perfect. Iíve tried a...

    I'm glad that my initial prognosis has been confirmed :thumbsup:

    OP this should be all the advice you need to leave well alone. As said though it may be worth exposing the "quite reputable" seller...
